Coenzyme Q10 Info

Coenzyme Q10 is often abbreviated to CoQ10 and is also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone and vitamin Q. Discovered in 1957, CoQ10 is a naturally occurring compound in our bodies that resembles the antioxidant vitamin E in its action, but with even more potential. Coenzyme Q10 is present in every cell of the body, predominantly in the mitochondria of each cell. As heart and liver cells have relatively more mitochondria, these organs contain more CoQ10 than other body tissues.

CoQ10 supplements come in two forms: Ubiquinol, the active antioxidant form or Ubiquinone, which our bodies must convert into ubiquinol. The CoQ10 circulating in the blood is mostly in the ubiquinol form (around 90% in people with good health).

Coenzyme Q10 Benefits

Clinical research has shown that CoQ10 plays a major role in promoting heart health, increasing energy levels, enhancing the immune system, supporting healthy gums, providing antioxidant activity and may even decrease some of the side effects associated with certain prescription drugs. Periodontal gum disease, allergies, bronchial asthma, chronic microbial infections and low sperm motility are all said to benefit from supplementation with coenzyme Q10.

CoQ10 supplementation has also been shown to beneficially support women with breast cancer.

CoQ10 is also showing promise as potential support for those with neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson, ALS and Alzheimer disease.

Coenzyme Q10 Side Effects

Consult a health professional before taking CoQ10 if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Congestive heart failure patients who are taking Coenzyme Q10 should not discontinue taking the supplements unless under the supervision of a doctor.

    star

    I have been using this product for many years and take a tablet every day. I wish however than it came in packs of 90 to match the amount in the other supplements I take. Is there a chance they would package a larger amount??

    I will be taking this product for the next 12 months when my next blood test is due to monitor my blood / cholesterol levels. It will be interesting to see if CoQ10 has been of benefit or not. Thanks HealthPost for your continued prompt and efficient service.
